Hope everybody is doing well. Got this as a forward mail. Interesting to find out (at least to me) that Aspartame kills people.
Thought you might want to know something about artificial sweeteeners, please read on.
There is an epidemic across North America today of Multiple Sclerosis and
Lupus. Most people do not understand why this epidemic is happening, and
they do not know why these diseases are so rampant. I would like to share
with you the main reason we are having this very serious problem.
Many people today use artificial sweeteners in their tea or coffee. They do
this because the ads they see on TV tell them that sugar is bad for their
health. This is absolutely true. Sugar is toxic to us, but, what most
people use as a replacement for sugar is much more deadly.
I am talking about Aspartame. It is the cause of the epidemic that was
mentioned above. Aspartame is an extremely toxic chemical that is produced
by a chemical company called Monsanto.
Aspartame is being marketed around the world as a sugar substitute and is
found in all diet soft drinks, such as Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi. It is also
found in artificial sweeteners such as NutraSweet, Equal, and Spoonful; and
it is used in many other products as a sugar replacement.
Aspartame is marketed as a diet product, but it is not a diet product at
all. In fact, it will cause you to GAIN weight because it makes you crave
Causing you to gain weight is only a very small part of what Aspartame
does. Aspartame is a toxic chemical that changes the brain's chemistry. It
can and does cause severe seizures. This chemical changes the dopamine
level in the brain, and it is particularly deadly for anyone suffering from
Aspartame is extremely poisonous, and here is why. One of the toxic
ingredients of Aspartame is wood alcohol. When the temperature of Aspartame
exceeds 86 degrees F, the wood alcohol in the Aspartame is converted to
formaldehyde, and then to formic acid, which in turn causes metabolic
Formaldehyde is grouped in the same class of poisons as Cyanide and Arsenic
- which are very deadly toxins. The only difference is...Formaldehyde kills
quietly, and it takes a little longer. And, in the process of killing
people, it causes all kinds of neurological
There are 92 documented symptoms of Aspartame Poisoning leading to coma and
death. The majority of these symptoms are neurological, because the
Aspartame attacks and destroys the nervous system. Some of the symptoms of
Aspartame Poisoning are covered below.
One of these symptoms is Lupus, which has become almost as rampant as
Multiple Sclerosis, especially with Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi drinkers.
When someone develops Lupus as a result of using Aspartame, they usually do
not know that the Aspartame is the culprit. They then continue to use
Aspartame, which aggravates the Lupus to such a degree that it sometimes
becomes life threatening.
When people finally get off the Aspartame, the severity of the Lupus
It is generally believed that once you develop Lupus, you will have it for
the rest of your life, but this is not so. Lupus can be defeated with some
very special treatment.
Aspartame Poisoning is also very often diagnosed as Multiple Sclerosis. The
methanol toxicity mimics Multiple Sclerosis, and therefore, people are
being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis when in fact they do not have it.
Multiple Sclerosis is not a death sentence, where Methanol Toxicity usually
When those who suffer from Aspartame Poisoning stop using Aspartame, most
of the symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis disappear. There are many cases where
someone's vision has returned, and even their hearing has returned.
We have a very serious problem here. More and more people who are heavy
Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi drinkers are being diagnosed with MS.
This also applies to other diseases. If you are using Aspartame and you
suffer from ibromyalgia symptoms such as spasms, shooting pains, numbness
in your legs, cramps, vertigo, dizziness, headaches, tinnitus, joint pain,
depression, anxiety attacks, slurred speech, blurred vision, or memory
loss, you probably do not have Fibromyalgia, you very likely have Aspartame
At the Conference of the American College of Physicians, doctors admitted
that they did not know the cause of the epidemic in MS and Lupus. It is
believed that the phenylalanine in the Aspartame breaks down the seizure
threshold and depletes Serotonin, which causes manic depression, panic
attacks, rage, and violence.
According to the Conference of the American College of Physicians, "We are
talking about a plague of neurological diseases caused by this deadly
Aspartame is especially deadly for diabetics. All physicians know what wood
alcohol will do to a diabetic. There are many cases where physicians
believe they have a patient with etinopathy, when in fact, the problem is
caused by Aspartame. The Aspartame keeps the blood sugar level out of
control, causing many patients to go into a coma. Unfortunately, many
diabetics who have used Aspartame have died.
There are many recorded cases where diabetics have switched from Saccharin
to an aspartame product, and many of these people have eventually gone into
a coma. Their physicians could not get the blood sugar levels under
control. Thus, the patients suffered acute memory loss, and eventually coma
Two prominent Doctors, Dr. Blaylock and Dr. H. J. Roberts, have written
books on aspartame Poisoning. Dr. Blaylock's book is entitled:
"EXCITOTOXINS: THE TASTE THAT KILLS". Dr. H.J. Roberts, diabetic specialist
and world expert on Aspartame Poisoning, has written a book entitled
"DEFENSE AGAINST ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE".
Dr. Roberts realized what was happening when Aspartame was first marketed
and used. He said that his diabetic patients who used Aspartame presented
memory loss, confusion, and severe vision loss". The methanol in the
Aspartame converts to Formaldehyde in the retina of the eye, and causes
people to go blind.
Memory loss is due to the fact that aspartic acid and phenylalanine are
neurotoxic without the other amino acids found in protein. Thus it goes
past the blood brain barrier and deteriorates the neurons of the brain.
Dr. Roberts tells how Aspartame Poisoning is escalating Alzheimer's
disease. Women of 30 years of age are being admitted that have developed
Alzheimer's disease as a result of using Aspartame.
Aspartame Disease is partially the cause of what is behind some of the
mystery of the Desert Storm health problems (Gulf War Syndrome). The
burning tongue and other problems discussed in over 60 cases can be
directly related to the consumption of an Aspartame product.
Several thousand pallets of diet drinks were shipped to the Desert Storm
troops. (Remember that heat can liberate the methanol from the Aspartame at
86 degrees F). These diet drinks sat on pallets in the 120-degrees F.
Arabian sun for weeks at a time. The service men and women drank them all
day long, and all of their symptoms are identical to Aspartame Poisoning.
According to Dr. Roberts, another serious problem is that consuming
Aspartame during pregnancy can cause birth defects. When the Aspartame
attacks the nervous system it does not allow the unborn child to develop
Aspartame consumption has also been shown to lead to cancer. In the
original lab tests on Aspartame, animals that were given Aspartame
developed brain tumours. The phenylalanine breaks down into DXP, which is a
brain tumour agent.
How serious is this Aspartame Poisoning? A mother who had a child on
NutraSweet was told to get her child off the product. The child was having
grand mal seizures every day. The mother spoke to her doctor, who called
the ADA, who told the doctor not to take the child off the NutraSweet. They
are still trying to convince the mother that the Aspartame is causing the
seizures. Every time you take a grand mal seizure victim off of Aspartame,
the seizures stop. Here is the major problem. Congressional Hearings were
held when Aspartame was originally approved for use in 100 different
products. Since that initial hearing, there have been two more hearings to
try to ban this product, but to no avail. The drug and chemical lobbies
have very deep pockets.
This list of 100 has now expanded to where there are over 5,000 products
containing this chemical, and the patent has expired. Also, Aspartame is
now available in over 90 countries around the world.
There is a bit of hope. Stevia, a sweet herb which helps in the metabolism
of sugar, and which is proving to be ideal for diabetics, has now been
approved as a dietary supplement by the F.D.A. For years, the F.D.A. had
outlawed this sweet food because of their loyalty to Monsanto.
I assure you that MONSANTO, the creator of Aspartame, knows exactly how
deadly their product is. They fund the American Diabetes Association, the
American Dietetic Association, Congress, and the Conference of the American
College of Physicians. They have the contacts and the power to keep their
product on the market. Public health means nothing to these people, it's
all about making money.
Senator Howard Hetzenbaum wrote a bill that would have warned all pregnant
mothers and children of the dangers of Aspartame. The bill would also have
instituted independent studies on the problems existing in the population
seizures, changes in brain chemistry, changes in neurological and
behavioural symptoms). It was killed by the powerful drug and chemical
lobbies, letting loose the hounds of disease and death.
We ask that you help to get the word out about Aspartame. Print this
article and distribute it to everyone you know. There are a lot of people
out there who must be warned, PLEASE let them know this information. You
might want to print it out, hand it to your friends, or fax it to people
who are not online.
Young people drink a lot of Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi, and because of this,
they are the most susceptible to Aspartame Poisoning. Please let your
children know about the toxins in these drinks.
A large number of adults use Nutrasweet, Equal, or Spoonful. They also need
to be warned of the dangers in those products.And, very importantly, do not
consume anything that has Aspartame in it. If it says "Sugar Free" on the
label, it may contain Aspartame. Please read the labeling carfully and if it contains Aspartame...DO NOT BUY THE PRODUCT.
